Dedication of the 1999 Annual 



We are pleased to dedicate the 1999 Annual in honor of Mr. Curtis Bettini and Rev. 
D.C. Sullivan and in memory of Mr. Dewitt Purvis. 

Mr. Curt Bettini, deacon and lay leader in the First 
Baptist Church, Southern Pines, has served in numerous 
positions of leadership in his church and in the association. 
In a survey in his church he was selected as the most influ- 
ential lay person. He has served as chair person of several 
committees in his church and in the association. He has 
been steadfastly loyal to his church and the association over 
the years, attending worship services and supporting pro- 
jects and events. In the association he served as vice-mod- 
erator and moderator (1972-75) and as chair person of the 
finance, nominating, and property/grounds committees. He 
was building supervisor in constructing the new association- 
al training and resource center. He has been attending 
Association Board meetings on a regular basis since 1962. 
His and his wife, Jo, have three children: Larry Michael 
Bettini, Barbara Bettini, and Kathy Bettini, and several grandchildren. 




Rev. Doric Council Sullivan, born September 17, 1929, 
has been faithfully preaching the gospel for 50 years. Rev. 
Sullivan was born on September 17, 1929, in Parkwood, 
North Carolina. He married Beulah Lucille Davis of 
Robbins Crossroads on November 25, 1946. They have two 
sons: Phillip W. and Jerry L. and six grandchildren. He was 
a member of Flint Hill Baptist Church of the Sandhills 
Association when he announced his call to ministry on June 
19, 1949. He has served churches in Montgomery, Liberty, 
Pee Dee, Randolph, Buncombe, Haywood, Union, S. Yatkin, 
and Sandhills associations. Rev. Sullivan was educated at 
Fruitland Bible Institute and received additional training 
through Seminary Extension and other seminars. 
Throughout his adult life, he has been active in church, com- 
munity, association, and state convention. He has served as 
president of the pastors conference in the Haywood association, and state convention. He 
has served as president of the pastors conference in the Haywood association and on sev- 
eral committees in the associations where he served as pastor. In 1960 he served on the 
Committee on Committees of the Baptist State Convention. In the summer of 1999 his 
church, the Red Branch Baptist Church, honored him and his wife, Beulah, with a special 
program and reception in celebration of his preaching the gospel for 50 years. His inter- 
ests include hunting, gardening, and carpentry.

Mr. Dewitt Purvis was born on September 1, 1924 in 
Moore County and graduated from High Falls High School. 
He married Sylvia Horner in 1946 and they have 3 children: 
Geraldine Boyd, Karen Chalflich, Sharon Oakes and 5 
grandchildren. He and Sylvia have been faithful in service 
at Calvary Baptist Church and in the association most of 
their adult years. Dewitt was tax assessor and tax supervisor 
for Moore County until his retirement in the early nineties. 
He has been Sunday School teacher, Sunday School director, 
deacon chairman, choir director and committee member of 
several committees in his church. In the association he faith- 
fully served as treasurer from 1956-78 and as clerk from 
1956-1999. He was a valuable member of the Building and 
Grounds Committee which had responsibility of recom- 
mending the location for the new center and in helping with 

the process of constructing the center. He continued to serve on the association building 

and property committee. 

We thank God for these three devoted servants and for their many contributions to our 

churches and to the ministries of the Sandhills Baptist Association.

and a $1 raise per hour, $9 to $10 per hour for the Secretary. 

7. The director of missions, Dr. J. Billy Graham, gave his report and the Clerk's 
report. Dr. Graham thanked the leaders for their giving of themselves in ministry in the 
association and the church leadership for assisting in sending the church letters and other 
information for the book of reports and the churches for their strong support of associa- 
tion ministries. 

8. The moderator recognized Rev. Ernest Ferrell to present the motion from the 
Association Board on incorporation. Mr. Vivian Green, Chairman of the Constitution and 
by-law Committee, explained the procedure for incorporation. The motion will be voted 
on at the Tuesday evening session.

About that Name."

Patricia joined her in presenting an informative skit on "transformed." Rev. Lewis Blue 
gave the Baptist Men report. Rev. Don Ballenger presented the Evangelism report and a 
report on Campbell University. Rev. Ballenger stated that Campbell sought not only to

teach students how to make a living but also how to make a life. There are over 8,000 
enrolled students from all 50 states and 40 foreign countries. 

12. Mr. Curt Bettini gave the Property and Grounds report, stating that $8,768 was 
now invested in the NC Baptist Foundation Building and Grounds Endowment Fund. 
Individuals and churches are invited to contribute to the fund. When the fund reaches 
$40,000, interest from the principal will be sent back to the association for upkeep and 
maintenance of the building and grounds. 

13. Several choir directors formed an association choir and blessed us through spe- 
cial music. 

14. The Monday night session was concluded with former moderators sharing some 
historical highlights in the life of the association. The session proved to be informative, 
inspiring, and in some ways, humorous. Rev. Bennie Maness told how he had worked 
with Rev. OJ Hagler in organizing the charter member churches and enlightened the mes- 
sengers of other historical developments. Then the following moderators spoke: Rev. 
Max Gilmore, Mr. Curt Bettini, Rev. Charles Hinson, Mr. Lee Rorie, Mr. Bill Bost, Rev. 
Bob Morrison, Mr. Vivian Green, Mr. Robert Cooke, and Rev. John Stone.

Convention, who spoke to us briefly on mission opportunities and needs in Sao Paulo: new 
church buildings, more evangelistic outreach, a bus to help in an area to reach more peo- 
ple for a new mission, a medical and dental boat in use for evangelism on a large river. 
Mrs. Virginia Oliver, former missionary to Brazil, was interpreter. 

10. Rev. Carolyn Helms gave the report from the Baptist State Convention General

of Reports and to include in the 1999 Annual was approved. The details of each presen- 
tation will be described in the printed reports. 

13. During the recognition period, Dr. J. Billy Graham thanked the leaders of the 
association for their labor of love, the churches for their strong support, and the host 
churches for their graciousness in hosting the fiftieth session. Dr. Graham presented a 
plaque to Mrs. Sylvia Purvis honoring Mr. Dewitt Purvis for 44 years of faithful service

in memory of Mr. Dewitt Purvis and in honor of Mr. Curtis Bettni and Rev. DC Sullivan. 

14. Dr. Greg Poplin led in a meaningful installation service and offered prayer of 
dedication, challenging the new officers and leaders to be willing, be faithful, to pray, to

ued support of the missions and ministries of the Baptist State Convention of North 
Carolina through praying, going and giving," and brought the closing message from Phil. 

-27- 



2:13-14. The message included a challenge to work out our salvation and to: (1) Believe 
the Word; (2) Win the lost; and (3) Disciple the saints. In the coining millennium the 1.3 
million Baptists in North Carolina are encouraged to work together. We are reminded that 
"When God guides, God provides." 

17. The words of the closing hymn, "Churches in Association," led by Mrs. Sandi 
Ward, speak our purpose and mission for the coming 21st Century: 

Churches in association, 
Freely joined in one accord; 
Linking hearts and hands together, 
Reaching out to share His Word. 
Guided by the Holy Spirit, 
Ever heeding Jesus' call, 
Dreaming, planning, teaching, doing, 
In association all. 

Lord, we pray for global vision 
Seeing millions lost in sin. 
Lord, we pray for the holy purpose 
Going forth the lost to win. 
Give us grace to work together 
Sharing Christ, whate'er befall, 
Praying, giving, going, telling 
In association all. 

18. Rev. Ernest Ferrell, pastor of Robbins First, vice-moderator for the past two years 
and newly elected moderator, expressed his desire to see the association work together and 
to do God's will, called the 50th annual session to adjournment and led in closing prayer 
and benediction.

2. Clerk's Report and Digest of Letters 

The Association Board met three times at the Association Center during the past year 
- January 18, May 24, and September 20. Key leaders of the association gave their reports 
and other business of the association was transacted. The Association Executive 
Committee met 30 minutes prior to each Board meeting. The meetings were well attend- 
ed by the representatives from the churches. In May the 1999-2000 calendar was adopt- 
ed, and it was voted to contribute $600 for three years - 1999, 2000, 2001 - for missions 
support in our partnership with South Africa to the Central Baptist Association. The 1999- 
2000 budget was presented for information to the annual meeting and at the September 
meeting the Association Board voted to recommend to the annual session that the associ- 
ation incorporate. The clerk's digest of letters is listed in the tables in the back section. 

3. Director of Missions Report 

During the year we were able to train and equip our association leaders to assist our 
churches in Sunday School, discipleship, evangelism, missions, music, stewardship, pas- 
toral ministries, and youth ministries. In addition to workshops and other training oppor- 
tunities some of our key leaders attended the key leader training at Ridgecrest and con- 
ducted an association key leader conference in August. Your director of missions and asso- 
ciation leaders are available to assist our churches in these important ministries. 

In two outstanding services this year we celebrated 50 years of preaching ministry with 
two of our pastors - Rev. Max Gilmore, pastor at Victory, and Rev. D.C. Sullivan, pastor, 
at Red Branch. We were saddened in the death of Dewitt Purvis, our faithful clerk for 40 
years. We will long remember and appreciate all that Dewitt did as clerk but also as trea- 
surer for nearly 20 years and his faithful service to his church and association in so many 
ways. The following churches had changes in pastoral leadership: Lemon Springs with 
interim pastor, Dr. Wayne Ballard of Campbell University; Aberdeen First with interim 
pastor, Rev. Charles Hinson and call to Rev. Thomas Herndon, effective October 1, 1999; 
New Freedom with Pastor Gary Greene moving to New Orleans Baptist Seminary and a 
call to Rev. Stephen Burrow as pastor; Ashley Heights with a call to Dr. David Boroughs 
as interim pastor and later a call to become pastor; Unity Grove pastor Rev. Brad Williams 
leaving for another pastorate and a call to Rev. Tony Connor as interim pastor; Eagle 
Springs pastor Rev. Ken Baker moving to another pastorate and a call to Dr. Zeb Moss as 
interim pastor, effective September 27, 1999. 

As director of missions I try to keep informed to be able to help our churches with spe- 
cific needs. Every five years the Baptist Sunday School Board invites a director of mis- 
sions to attend a Sunday School Board update in Nashville, Tennessee. It was my privi- 
lege to attend the update for the fifth time in my twenty years as director of missions. Our 
Baptist State Convention provides opportunities for directors of missions to meet with 
other directors of missions and convention staff from time to time. I was able to attend 
the directors of missions/convention staff planning meeting in January and the directors of 
missions annual conference in July at Caraway. 

We are frequently using our association training and resource center. Throughout the 
year we have conferences, workshops, receptions, meetings for deacons, youth and mis- 
sions leaders and various committee meetings. 

-30- 



We continue to work with our State Convention with partnerships. Hopefully, in the 
Spring of 2000, we will be able to send another team to do construction, evangelism, 
preaching, witnessing, and teaching in South Africa. Our churches will also have the 
opportunity to share in a partnership with the state of Alaska, beginning in January of 
2000. 

As we come to the close of the twentieth century, let us look back with thanksgiving to 
God for His goodness and blessings, and look with confidence and hope to the next mil- 
lennium. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J.Billy Graham, Director of Missions 

4. General Board Report 

The General Board of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina met three times 
during the year (January, May, and September) to conduct the business of North Carolina 
Baptists so that our mission and ministries remain vital and strong. Larry Harper, 
President of the General Board, led the board to discuss the issues of budget, cooperation, 
worship, and our mission and leadership; in so doing, he created an atmosphere of open- 
ness and trust. 

The General Board is a working board with committees that work with the North 
Carolina Baptist State Convention Staff to facilitate effective stewardship and communi- 
cation for our work of ministry and mission of North Carolina Baptists. 

The Board addressed three major issues at the most recent meeting in September. 1) 
Shared Leadership. The board is seeking to increase harmony and trust in our convention 
promoted the "Shared Leadership Plan" which proposes to alternate leadership between 
conservative and moderate Baptist leaders. 2) Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute Library. 
The board voted overwhelmingly to support the proposal to construct a new library at 
Fruitland. The institute has never had a formal library. This proposal will address that 
important need. 3) Disaster Relief. The board heard reports on our Disaster Relief teams' 
ministry in the aftermath of Hurricane Floyd. Our Disaster Relief teams have been 
involved in both relief and recovery ministries throughout eastern North Carolina. North 
Carolina Baptists continue to share Christ's love with those who are devastated by natur- 
al disasters. 

Thank you for the opportunity and joy of serving North Carolina Baptists. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Carolyn Helms, Don Ballenger 



VII. Department Directors' Reports 

1. Baptist Men Report 

Some highlights of the 1998-99 year for the Baptist Men and RA's was the Royal 
Ambassador week, Nov. 1-7, and Baptist Men's Day in the churches on January 24, with 
most churches participating. The annual RA car race was held Feb. 28 at Southern Pines 

-31- 



FBC, the On Track for Missions Field Day at Union Pines High School on April 10, and 
the Baptist Men's and RA rally at the associational office August 9. All these activities 
seek to bring men and boys together in a spirit of love and Christian fellowship while 
focusing on missions outreach to the lost in our community and the world. Aug. 30 was 
the date for Baptist Men and RA training for leaders at Carthage FBC. We had represen- 
tatives form NCBM to assist with workshops for men and boys. Quite a few interesting 
ideas were passed around for men's ministry opportunities, as varied as the men in the 
churches. I believe that God calls individuals to minister in many ways and in order to 
include all men in ministry, we must be willing to support each other in ministries that 
allow each to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in the area in which he is called to 
serve, perhaps requiring that Baptist men have not one focus but several, that the gifts of 
all may be utilized (2 Tim. 1:6). 

Well, another year has gone and, as Romans 13:11 says, "now is our salvation nearer 
than when we believed." This past was an active year, however, I wonder if we focused 
enough on the things of eternal consequence. Disaster relief has been a goal and a dream 
of the association for some time now, and as North Carolina experiences what may be its 
worst ever natural disaster, we are not prepared as we would like to be to reach out to those 
who are hurting and suffered loss. I pray that in the coming year Baptist Men will join 
together in the Sandhills Association to meet the challenge of missions and outreach 
opportunities. As always, I am available to Men's groups and churches if I can help in any 
way. God bless. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lewis Blue, Director 



2. Discipleship Training Report 

A vital part of the Great Commission is "making disciples." The discipleship training 
program in a church is important to the discipling of our members and equipping them to 
live a more deeply devoted life with Christ. Graded materials and other resources are 
available to the churches for dicipling church members. Materials for new members such 
as the Survival Kit and other resources are available to train these new Christians or peo- 
ple from other denominations who are unfamiliar with Baptist beliefs and practices. 
Spiritual renewal studies, such as "Experiencing God," by Henry Blackaby and the new 
series on "The Mind of Christ" is highly recommended for small group Bible study in 
your church. Consider preparing some leaders to work with your children and youth in 
Bible drills and speakers tournaments. Training is important to the development of the 
individual Christian and to the equipping of the strong church member. Your association 
and state convention (Laity Leadership) are available to help you. The state convention 
toll free number is 1-800-395-5102, ext. 209. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Dave Schuchard, Director

3. Evangelism Report 

North Carolina Baptists continue to reach people for Jesus Christ. Last year we bap- 
tized 28,172 people, a 2.4 increase over the year before. 

The organization of our North Carolina Baptist Convention has been changed to a 
Team Concept. In the area of evangelism, the structure is as follows: 

Evangelism and Church Growth Team Leader: Milton Hollifield 
Evangelism Team Leader: Nelson Searcy 
Event Evangelism: Marty Dupree 
Ministry Evangelism: Jerry Richards 
Student Evangelism: Hal Melton 

Any of these men can be reached at 1-800-395-5102, ext. 224, if you would like to help 
for your church, or you may use the web site: www.ncevangelism.org. 

The big event we are concentrating on now is Celebrate Jesus 2000. This is the largest 
evangelism thrust ever attempted in our nation. The goal is simple, to pray for and com- 
municate the Gospel to all residents of North America by 12-31-2000. Materials have 
already been sent to all churches. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Don Ballenger, Director 

4. Library Media Report 

Every church can benefit from a library and media support ministry. Reference books, 
commentaries, concordances, and other kinds of books in a library can be very helpful to 
teachers, leaders, and to the entire membership. Media materials on the Bible, teaching, 
training, children, youth, adulis, missions, deeper spiritual life and other needs in the life 
of the church will strengthen the church ministries. The association and convention have 
materials and resources that are available for use in the churches. Betty Hardy of Ives 
Memorial church has agreed to serve as association media director for the coming year. 
She will be available to consult with churches and to help with a workshop for church 
librarians. 

5. Missions Report 

The Sandhills Association has had many opportunities to do missions throughout the 
year. The Hispanic ministry is progressing slowly. Some of our churches have partnered 
with churches from other denominations to begin a homeless ministry in the Moore 
County area, particularly in the Southern Pines and Aberdeen area. Aberdeen First has 
transformed their parsonage into a day care center for the homeless. Others have opened 
their churches as shelters for overnight sleeping and they are providing transportation to 
take them to the day care center during the day. 

There have been no new churches begun this year, however, if any church or group of 
churches would like to begin a mission in a growing area of our associational area, please 
inform the Director of Missions, Dr. J. Billy Graham or Pastor Ed Johnson of the Missions 
Council and we will be more than happy to help with the logistics of getting started. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Ed Johnson, Director

6. Music Report 

Each new year begins with training and preparation. Every August, music leaders meet 
at the Key Leadership meeting to share needs and ideas and to plan the upcoming year. 
This year we basically kept the same events - and all agreed to share the leadership load 
with Sandi: Linda Barber would handle the Soup-n-Sandwich meal, Viola Bowlin would 
help with PR and phone calls, Steven Gilmore would work with the ChoirSing, and Jerry 
Armstrong would assist with leading the music for the Monday session of the annual 
meeting. Thanks to each of these leaders for their willingness to share our association 
responsibilities. 

In January, we held our fourth "soup and sandwich swap shop" at the Resource Center. 
Several of our choir directors enjoyed a meal together while sharing ideas, joys, and chal- 
lenges within music ministry at their churches plus what we needed to be doing in the 
association. 

On April 13 over ninety of us from nine churches enjoyed a choral clinic led by Dr. 
Phillip Morrow of Campbell University. We learned songs from the current GlorySongs 
publication. This was the best-attended clinic yet. 

Our sixth ChoirSing was held on August 29 at Aberdeen FBC. Nine churches, provid- 
ing ten entries, participated this year: Aberdeen Choir, Cameron Choir and Youth Choir, 
Vass, Robbins, Southern Pines, Emmanuel, Victory, Carthage, and Fairview Youth. We 
continue to really enjoy this tradition. 

Then, key leadership rolled around again in August. Our Director of Missions, J. Billy 
Graham, had requested an association choir for the annual meeting - the 50th birthday of 
the Sandhills Association. Key leadership was used to practice that music with the direc- 
tors. 

Thank you for all the music you make in your churches and in our association. I hope 
and pray that you and your musicians are continuing to grow in the delights of singing and 
making music for the Lord. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Jesse Mansfield, Director 

7. Pastoral Ministries Report 

The Pastoral Ministries Department seeks to assist ministers and deacons in pastoral 
ministries. Excellent resources are available for our benefit. Working with Dr. Fred 
McGhee, director, minister support, BSC, we sponsored two three hour seminars for our 
ministers, ministers from the community and from other associations. The deacon work- 
shop on November 23, 1998 was led by Dr. Eddie Hammett, consultant with the state con- 
vention laity leadership. On November 30, 1998, Rev. Don Bouldin, director, BSC church 
programs, will be the leader for our annual deacon conference. Pastors and deacons, make 
plans to attend. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Jesse Mansfield, Director

8. Senior Adult Report 

This year the senior adult banquet was held at Ives Memorial church in their new fel- 
lowship hall. There were 200 plus in attendance for the meal. Entertainment was pro- 
vided by Mrs. Wannaby who kept us all laughing until we hurt. Next year our banquet 
will be on May 1 at Robbins FBC whose new fellowship hall will welcome us. We are 
planning a pig picking event with Fred Taylor and friends to provide the musical enter- 
tainment. We look forward to seeing you senior adults there. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Archie Stevens 



9. Stewardship Report 

Unfortunately, this past year we were not able to have the Annual Stewardship 
Conference because the stewardship department at the State Convention was being reor- 
ganized. However, we have some excellent material on stewardship for churches now at 
the associational office. For more information on this material please contact Dr. Billy 
Graham or Rev. Gregg Newton. Also, please make plans to attend our Stewardship 
Conference, May 25 at 6:30 pm. 

We hope and pray that our churches keep up the good work in the area of stewardship 
and remember that God loves a cheerful giver. Thank you ! 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Gregg Newton 



10. Sunday School Report 

We conducted several training events this year. On March 22, 1999, a Sunday School 
workshop was held at Cameron Baptist Church, led by Rev. Phil Stone of the Baptist State 
Convention, and assisted by our association ACTeam. The workshop was most helpful. 
A delicious meal was served. Possibly, Mr. Stone will be back next Spring for another 
workshop. 

A very good association VBS workshop on the theme, "Mt. Extreme: Climbing to 
Greater Heights with Jesus," was held at Bethlehem church, under the direction of our 
association VBS team, Mrs. Judy Strother, director. The clinic was well attended. 

Another training session, led by Mrs. Jeannie Jordon, was held during the Key Leader 
Conference at Carthage First on August 30. Literature for all age groups was displayed 
and plans for the new Sunday School year were discussed. 

The Association Associational Consulting Team (ACTeam) is available to assist our 
association in the following ways: Know about Sunday School work; be skilled in con- 
ference leading; grow in consultation skills; model good Sunday School work by being 
involved; and be available to churches. As we come to the new millennium, the ACTeam 
is here to help you face the challenges of better Bible teaching. A set of training tapes in 
the association media library is available for use by the churches.

11. Woman' s Missionary Union Report 

With the theme "Transformed," our Associational W.M.U. Leadership Team began the 
1998-1999 year with a training rally on September 19, 1998 at Aberdeen First Baptist 
Church. Training was offered for all W.M.U. age group leaders: Women on Mission, 
Acteens, GA's and Mission Friends. Mission involvement was also included. A very 
interesting new format was used illustrating, "We are all in the work together. We need 
each other and we must work together." 

In appreciation of our pastors and their spouses, a dinner was given at Cameron Baptist 
Church on October 23, 1998. Everyone had a very enjoyable time. This event was coor- 
dinated by the leadership team who also cooked most of the food. 

Our annual prayer retreat was held February 27, 1999 at Vass Baptist Church. Anne 
Graham was our inspirational speaker and study leader. 

Our annual meeting was held at Ives Memorial Baptist Church on March 25, 1999 with 
Evelyn Ballenger, Assistant Director, presiding. Special music was provided by Evelyn's 
daughter and granddaughters. They also led us in praise choruses. Our speaker was Rev. 
Patton Malone. Dr. J. Billy Graham, our Director of Missions, presented a beautiful 
plaque to Deanna Stockwell in appreciation of her many years of service to the associa- 
tion as Associational W.M.U. Director. Refreshments were served after the meeting. 

A very successful GA Day Camp was held at Ephesus Baptist Church, March 20, 1999. 
Approximately 90 persons attended this event which was coordinated and directed by 
Vickie Comer and Nancy UpChurch, our Associational GA Consultants. 

An Acteens Tea was planned by Acteen Consultants Nellie Wilson and Ann Mills. Due 
to very little response this event was canceled. We hope there will be better response to 
these events in the future. 

The Leadership Team received training at Caraway Conference Center July 16-17, 
1999. The training was led by our W.M.U. State leaders and approved workers. Our team 
was housed at Camp Mundo Vista due to an over capacity attendance. We were in a nice- 
ly renovated cabin. It was 98 degrees (at least!) outside and we had no air conditioner. 
However, we did have an attic type fan that was a great help. It pulled a lot of air (and 
creepy crawlers!). We did notice a new heating unit for cold weather. Our team was real- 
ly impressed with inspirational messages and posters left by the young ladies who were 
responsible for cleaning. We held a planning meeting while at the conference. 

On August 20, 1999, our ministers, interim pastors, retired ministers, missionaries, 
church staff persons and their spouses were again honored with an appreciation dinner. 
The event was held at the Association Resource Center. Evelyn Ballenger and Anne 
Graham entertained with wonderfully funny skits, bringing laughter to all. Rev. Zeb Moss 
led in some foreign language choruses and attempted to teach them to us. It was really 
great to hear our attendees actually singing in a foreign language. Thank you, Rev. Moss! 

Association-wide mission involvement included: coats for North Korean children 
birthday cakes for Cameron Boys Home, and socks for long term facility residents. 
Thanks to all the church members who participated in these mission involvement oppor- 
tunities. 

In addition to our annual planning meeting, we also had regular quarterly planning 
meetings. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Viola Bowlin, Director

12. Youth and Campus Ministry 

1998-99 has been a growing year for the youth ministries within the Sandhills Baptist 
Association. Several churches have hired new youth ministers. We welcome each of 
these and encourage them to become active in the youth ministries of the association. We 
continue to hold regularly scheduled meetings for our youth ministers at the association 
center. We enjoyed good attendance at most of the meetings. The meetings were con- 
ducted to plan associational events for youth and as a time to share and to network. We 
continue to encourage adult leaders, volunteers and staff members as well as key youth 
from each group to come and share with us. There was good participation at the associa- 
tion youth night held at Vass First. We encourage you to begin now to prepare for the 
1999-2000 youth night by working with your group on dramas, songs or some creative 
ministry ideas. We hope to have 100% participation from the churches. God has blessed 
our association greatly in youth ministry this year. We continue to ask His will and bless- 
ing upon the youth and youth leaders. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robbie Gibson, Youth Director

5. Ordination Council Report 

This council is available to assist any church on request with the examination of any- 
one called in the gospel ministry. The council is composed of the ministers of the associ- 
ation. On request from their churches, the following men were examined by the council 
for the gospel ministry: Roger Thomas of Ephesus, Charles English of Robbins First, and 
Robbie Gibson of Vass First. The council examined them as to their beliefs, conversion 
experiences, understanding of the holy scriptures, the ordinances, Christian education, 
ministry in the local church and mission settings, the church, and personal family life. The 
council unanimously recommended them to their churches for ordination. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert Morrison, Jr., Chairman 



6. Property and Grounds Committee Report 

The Property and Grounds Committee helps maintain the association property and 
seeks to keep the grounds in good condition and attractive in appearance. We have begun 
to receive some contributions to the endowment fund. The goal is endow this fund up to 
$40,000 to $50,000 and use the interest for maintenance and utilities. The Finance and 
Budget Committee recommends that $5,000 from the general fund be put in this fund this 
year. We encourage churches and individuals to support this endowment fund project, a 
final goal of the building program. We were saddened to lose Mr. Dewitt Purvis by death 
this year, a valuable member of this committee from its inception. The Baptist Men of the 
association are encouraging churches to volunteer to help maintain the grounds. Pleasant 
Hill and Red Branch maintained the grounds in May and July. Fertilizer and lime were 
put on the grounds this year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Curt Bettini, Chairman 



7. Seminary Extension Director 

Seminary Extension continues to be a means by which one can study the Bible and the- 
ology from the comfort of your own home. You can earn both college and seminary cred- 
its from some of the courses. Maybe you just want to take a Bible survey course or a par- 
ticular book of the Bible, or even study about a particular subject area such as The Holy 
Spirit, you can do it through seminary extension. If you are one of those busy folk who 
find it hard to take time away from home or work to further your Christian education, then, 
seminary extension is for you. Anyone desiring to have more information should contact 
the association center.

Ed Johnson, Director

IX. Institutions, Agencies and 
Board Reports 

Through the working together of sister churches, locally and on the state and national 
level, we are able to be involved in multiple ministries, much of which we could not do 
by ourselves. In our own state we are fortunate to have excellent institutions and agencies 
and dedicated, skilled leaders to make possible many mission ministries. We have more 
detailed information regarding the work of these institutions and boards in the associa- 
tional center. Or, you may contact the Baptist State Convention, P O Box 1 107, Cary, N C

tance of subscribing and reading The Biblical Recorder, our state Baptist paper. It is an 
excellent source of news about our denomination. Baptists should realize the overall goals 
of our state and national conventions. We are cooperating Baptists and therefore need to 
feel a part of the whole picture. I hope that subscribers will increase support of our state 
convention (Bernice Briggs).

ed. The church has no debts. We installed two new deacons: Bryan Ritter and

ful VBS. Seniors went on several trips including: seeing "Horn in the West", "Strike

Legacy Builders are still very active completing many projects of relief and helping 
needy people. (Alma Kelly, Lois Moses, Historians)

ed in "Experiencing God" in the spring. Joyce Clevenger from Southern Pines First 
Baptist was hired as a summer youth worker. Some activities the youth participat- 
ed in under her leadership were a trip to Boone and the Samaritan's Purse, Super 
Summer 99, and a trip to Emerald Isle. The children's chime choir performed 
monthly under the direction of Mrs. Becky Prim. The Baptist Men sponsored the 
project to renovate the church parsonage with painting, new carpet, and new appli- 
ances. Rev. Tom Herndon was called as new pastor effective October 1, 1999.

about it. We are really growing in membership. (Betty Taylor, clerk) 

EPHESUS: In October, World Hunger was observed with an offering. Donice Harrod, a 
former missionary to Africa, spoke on the fiftieth anniversary of continuous WMU

Baptist Women's Day of Prayer was observed the first Monday in November with a 
program and offering. The Baptist Children's Home offering was led by the men of 
the church. Fifty seven boxes were sent to the Samaritan's Purse. In December, 
the WMU led the church in observance of the 1MB Week of Prayer for foreign mis- 
sions with special programs and mission study; offering goal was achieved. The 
Chancel Choir presented a cantata, and the youth choir gave a play, and the chil- 
dren's choir sang. The youth went on their annual ski trip in January. The women 
held a prayer retreat with lunch, and Baptist Men's day observed on the third 
Sunday. In February, we had the annual Baptist Women's Day with a speaker at

ing that reached our goal. Training for church members was held on Friday night 
and all day Saturday in which relational evangelism was taught by Rev. Barry 
Patchett of the State Convention; the hospitality served lunch. Youth presented the 
play "Beguiled". An Easter Cantata was presented by the Chancel Choir and spe- 
cial music by youth and children's choirs. Sunday school teacher training by Rev. 
Billy Graham was held in April. Associate minister, Roger Thomas was examined 
for the gospel ministry by the Association and Ephesus church licensed and 
ordained him. Rev. George Pierce, gospel musician, led our revival in May. VBS 
in June was rewarding with many children reached. Group leaders were selected 
and taught for 14 weeks by the pastor. The small groups that were formed will meet 
once a month and continue to involve members under the title - "Serving God: 
Discovering and Using Spiritual Gifts." The youth went to Mars Hill to camp for a 
week and to Baptist Day at Carowinds. The Kids-4-Christ, grades 1-6, meet week- 
ly for Bible study and have had several outings. The associate minister has been 
faithful and was called full-time in August. A new Sunday School class, college and 

-46- 



career, was begun in September. Much has been accomplished this year with many 
people working together. (Bernice Briggs, Historian) 

FAIRVIEW: Youth went on a mission trip to Rock Cave, West Virginia, and presented a 
play, The Image. 

FAITH: Pastor Willie Bryant resigned effective October 1999. (Judy Martin, clerk) 

IVES MEMORIAL: Rev. Roger Roller led our Spiritual Refreshement Week-end on 
November 20-22, 1998. This event consisted of four services for the purpose of 
spiritual renewal of our church. We sponsored state, home and foreign mission stud- 
ies and offerings, conducted a VBS with record attendance, participated in joint 
community Thanksgiving services, and held a candlelight service on New Year's 
Eve. We enjoyed a sweetheart banquet in February, held our homecoming in May 
with Rev. Paul West, former pastor, as speaker. The youth participated in youth 
Sunday, and the children's drama team performed several times during the year. 
Our fellowship hall finally became a reality this year. Construction of a 5,000 sq. 
ft. building was completed in late April. We held dedication service on April 25, 
1999. The new structure was also used for homecoming on May 2, 1999, and we 
hosted the annual Association Senior Dinner on the first Monday in May. (John 
Carpenter, historian) 

LEMON SPRINGS: Rev. Woodrow Neil became interim pastor for six months. Visits 
were made to Broadway Baptist Church, Cameron Boys Home and several places 
in outreach ministry during the year. The WMU prepared 28 shoe boxes containing 
toys and personal items for the Samaritan's Purse ministry. The goal of $4500 for 
the Lottie Moon offering for international missions was met and passed. Dr. J. Billy 
Graham led in teaching the foreign mission study. Two Christmas plays, It 
Happened in the Country and A Smokey Mountain Christmas were presented by the 
youth and adults. Several men and boys led in the Baptist Men's Day service on 
January 27. During WMU Focus Week several ladies of the church led in the ser- 
vices, followed by a covered dish meal. The church observed an Easter Sunrise 
Service, with breakfast provided by the men. On April 25, Truby Rackley was rec- 
ognized for thirty plus years as church treasurer, Janet Childress for forty plus years 
as pianist, and Linda Bullock for twenty plus years as choir director. On May 2, Dr. 
Wayne Ballard, Jr. professor at Campbell University Divinity school is serving as 
interim pastor. On June 5 the WMU served a breakfast for volunteers of Highway 
to Healing. We had a very successful Vacation Bible School in June. On July 21, 
Mr. Kevin Meadows shared of his mission trip to India. The youth enjoyed their trip 
to Carowinds on July 30. The church became incorporated in September. Rev. 
Bewey Shaver, former interim pastor, was speaker at 75th anniversary homecoming 
in September. (Gary Bullock, historian) 

MIDDLE CROSS: Another year in our church has passed and I would like to express 
my thankfulness for what God has helped us to accomplish. First, we had a won- 
derful Christmas and Easter program with everyone working together so that others 
could learn about God's salvation plan. In January, we set a goal of paying off our 
church debt. We had a wonderful VBS with the youth teaching the classes, and they 
planned and served the commencement meal. Several decisions for Christ were 
made during VBS. Our women's group sold cookbooks and Christmas ornaments 
and gave the proceeds toward our church debt. With everyone's prayers and God's 
help, our final payment was made on August 9th. Nothing is impossible with God. 
(Leora Thomas, Historian) 

NEW FREEDOM: Rev. Gary Greene resigned as pastor and moved to New Orleans to 

-47- 



attend the Baptist seminary. Rev. Stephen Burrow was called as pastor. The con- 
gregation has been studying a spiritual growth plan entitled Christian Life and 
Services Seminars. 

NEW HOME: God has truly blessed us this year. We are so proud of our youth! They 
participated in the food drive for Moldova, formed a wonderful choir, and have been 
faithful to attend their meetings. Pastor Appreciation Day was observed on June 16 
with special music and guest speakers, a great time of fellowship with dinner after- 
wards. (Vickie Hicks, Clerk) 

PINEY WOOD: During the year our church installed new carpet in the vestibule, two 
Sunday School rooms, and the ladies rest room. Also two electric heaters for two 
Sunday School rooms. Our church has a four year old boy, Josh Bullard, with can- 
cer. We held a benefit for the medical bills and raised $32,000 - Praise the Lord! 
The Lord is so good to us. We love our pastor and his family. (Shirley Lassiter, his- 
torian) 

PINE GROVE: In December of 1998 our church held a fundraiser to provide materials 
for the construction of an outdoor nativity scene. Costumes of angels, shepherds, 
wise men, and Mary40 and Joseph were also funded. Live animals were on loan 
from area farmers. The effort was a tremendous success and "live" performances 
were held in 30-minute intervals on the evenings of December 21-22. We plan for 
this to be an annual event. In October of 1998 the Brotherhood completed the pro- 
ject of installing a sign in front of the church that will announce upcoming events. 
On February 21, 1999 William Parker Britt became the first member, in the history 
of Pine Grove, to be presented the Eagle Scout Award. This is the highest award of 
scouting. February 28, a prison ministry was started by our pastor and several other 
church members at Sandhills Youth Center in Moore County which has continued 
each 4th Sunday evening and the response from the Center has been encouraging. 
Some of the other annual events included Senior Citizens Banquet, Thanksgiving 
service, circus trip, Valentine banquet, Easter sunrise service with breakfast, and 
Fun Day. (Cindy Sheffield, historian)

ROBBINS: The historical events and growth this year have been the most exciting of 
over 50 years of membership in our church here in Robbins. In October of 1998, 
our building of a new fellowship hall got off to a cooperative start by approval. In 
December of 1998 we observed the groundbreaking along with the building com- 
mittee and recognized the oldest and youngest members of our Sunday School 
membership. February, construction began on fellowship hall; many photos taken. 
We also purchased a larger van and sold the old van to Unity Grove. VBS was held 
in June with over 100 in attendance each day. Later in June, our youth went on a 
mission trip to Atlanta, and in July they spent a week at Caswell. We called a new 
staff member, Greg Pilson, as minister of Youth and Music Associate in August. We 
achieved our goal for completing our fellowship hall on homecoming Sunday, 
September 19th. A barbecue dinner was served in honor of the crew that worked so 
diligently and faithfully. We had a marvelous turnout for our homecoming service, 
with former members speaking and dinner in our new fellowship hall. During this 
year there has been a real growth in our membership, and all of you who have been 
faithful to our Lord are appreciated. (Kenneth & Opal Kennedy, Historians) 

SOUTHERN PINES: Our church opened its door and its heart to four Belarussian chil- 
dren and interpreter this summer. Here for 6 weeks, the children had dental and 
medical attention as well as numerous recreational trips. We took part in two local 
mission projects: reroofed the house of a needy family in Southern Pines and also 
helped refurbish the mission in Candor, NC. A total of 51 people took part in the 
World Changers project this summer in Chicago. The project entailed the repair of 
a one-block area of inner city houses. The youth choir went on a tour this spring 
which included performances at the Richmond Children's Hospital in Va., and The 
Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Silver Springs, Md. The group also served 

-49- 



lunch at Our Daily Bread, a soup kitchen for homeless people in Baltimore, Md. 
(Cos Barnes, Historian) 

TAYLOR MEMORIAL: Rev. Bob Morrison led our Spring Revival. In August, the 
ladies enjoyed a friendship banquet with the men serving the food. A committee has 
been formed to write a constitution and by-laws for the church. On September 26, 
the church celebrated homecoming and 75 years of service for the Lord. (Beulah 
Hartsell, Clerk) 

UNITY GROVE: The new fellowship hall was completed and dedicated this year. The 
pastor, Rev. Brad Williams, resigned to go to a church in Hillsborough. Rev. Tony 
Conner, music director, is serving as supply pastor. 

VASS: We have been blessed to have many projects going with some almost completed 
this year: renovations on our educational building will soon be complete; we are 
entering into a building program for the addition of 4 classrooms and 2 bathrooms; 
a sound system has been installed in the sanctuary; new hymn books were dedicat- 
ed in memory of members and friends. We were blessed to host an ordination ser- 
vice for our youth minister, Robbie Gibson. Other events to complete our year 
were: hosting Associational WMU prayer retreat, participation in Associational 
Choir Sing, and sending Christmas gifts in shoe boxes to the Samaritan purse min- 
istry. Our youth also continue to very involved with projects; hosting YouthQuake 
99, helping with community cleanup after Hurricane Floyd, and sponsoring a child 
in South America. Our children and youth programs continue to grow spiritually 
and numerically with the help of dedicated leaders (Belinda McNeill, Historian) 

VICTORY: Hired a part-time youth pastor. Purchased new hymnals and new pews to 
complete the pews needed in the sanctuary. (Patricia Chriscoe, Clerk) 

WEST END: Our church sponsored a youth day camp during the summer, with Wanda 
Wells, as director. The day camp was very helpful to many parents. Mr. Marvin 
Hill was ordained as deacon in July. (Laverne Cole, Clerk) 



XI. Historical Associational Highlights 

The 1950 Minutes of the Sandy Creek Baptist Association describes the organization 
of the South Sandy Creek Baptist Association in the following way: 

During the year 1948, after consultation with many of the brethren, Ottis J. Hagler, 
Pastor of the Carthage First Baptist Church, conceived the idea of contacting all the 
churches in Moore County and asking them to decide in Church Conference if they 
would like to form a new, smaller and more efficient Baptist Association. After much 
correspondence and personal contact the following Missionary Baptist Churches in 
Moore County agreed individually and separately to ask to be dismissed from the 
mother Association in order to form the South Sandy Creek Missionary Baptist 
Association: Aberdeen First Church, Ashley Heights, Calvary, Cameron, Carthage 
First Church, Ephesus, Flint Hill, Ives Memorial, Lemon Springs, Pine Grove, Piney 
Wood, Red Branch, Robbins First Church, Southern Pines First Church, Summer Hill, 
Taylor Memorial and Vass. 

The 1957 Minutes of the South Sandy Creek Association describes the following: In 
the eighth annual session held with Vass and Red Branch, the associational Committee to 

-50- 



Study Missions recommended three needs: (1) an associational missionary, (2) churches 
or communities which needed help in building, and (3) churches which need help in pas- 
toral support. The committee also recommended that a Missions Club be established for 
the purpose of helping to raise funds to carry out more local missions. The goal for the 
first year was $1000. 

The name of the association was changed to "Sandhills Baptist Association" in the 
1959 annual session held at Bethlehem and Robbins churches. Rev. Lee Pridgen, the first 
director of missions served the association in September of 1979. The secretaries who 
served the association include: Mrs. Kathy Blackwell, 1979-1980; Mrs. Cindy Priest, 
1980; and Mrs. Delia Gray, 1981 to present. The names of the moderators, clerks, trea- 
surers, and pastors who preached the annual sermons, and the places where the associa- 
tion met in annual sessions are recorded in the tables of each years Annual. Mr. Dewitt 
Purvis served faithfully for 40 years as Clerk before his homegoing in 1999. The associ- 
ation has been fortunate to have excellent leaders over the years ! 

One of the greatest achievements of the association was to plan, fund, locate and con- 
struct the Training and Resource Center over a period from 1985 to 1991. During the 
1991-1992 year we were able to dedicate this excellent facility debt free. The 3.3 acre lot 
cost $36,000 and the building was built, mostly by volunteer labor, for a cost of approxi- 
mately $100,000. In 1992 the building was appraised at $250,000. The final goal of the 
project was to invest $40,000 to $50,000 in an endowment fund with the Baptist 
Foundation for purpose of providing for the utilities and maintaining the property and 
grounds from the interest of the fund. The director of missions selected this project for 
his doctoral dissertation: "The Process of Locating and Planning the Funding and 
Constructing of a Baptist Associational Training and Resource Center." The dissertation 
has a copyright and is available on microfilm to colleges and seminaries. 

A chart describing the ten year trend from 1978-1987 was prepared by J. Billy Graham. 
The trends are as follows: A slight decrease in Sunday School enrollment, Vacation Bible 
School, and Brotherhood, and Woman's Missionary Union. There has been a variation in 
the number of baptisms and other additions of members received year by year, with the 
great percentage of gain in 1981 to 1985. Increases are also shown in Church Training 
and in Church Music. There are strong increases in all gifts to missions: association, 
home and foreign missions, the Cooperative Program and designated missions. The asso- 
ciation has been self sustaining since 1980. The value of church property has increased 
significantly, and the budget receipts doubled since 1978. 

In addition to the charter member churches, the following congregations have affiliat- 
ed with the association: Beaver Creek, Cornerstone, Eagle Springs, Emmanuel, Fairview, 
Faith, Middle Cross, New Freedom, New Home, Pleasant Hill, Unity Grove, and Victory. 
The association and the mother church, Ives Memorial church, have been giving encour- 
agement and support to New Freedom, the newest mission congregation. We are grateful 
for our heritage and for God's goodness during the past 50 years, and we look to the future 
with confidence as we accept the challenges of the new millennium. 

—Prepared by the Director of Missions, J. Billy Graham

Dedication of the 2000 Annual 



In appreciation for their faithful Christian lives and 
their strong support of the association, we dedicate the 
2000 annual to the following persons: Dr. Fleet Allen, 
Mrs. Fay Boroughs, Mr. Glen Crissman, Mr. Vivian 
Green, Mr. Herman Russell, and Mrs. Alliene Taylor. 
These faithful people have served in several places of 
leadership in their churches and in the association. 

Dr. Fleet Allen and his wife, Virginia, have two chil- 
dren, Mrs. Betty Henderson and Mrs. Peggy 
Williamson. He was director of the county extension 
service in Randolph and Moore counties. Following 
retirement in 1969, he received his doctorate from NC 
State and became director of research development at 
Sandhills Community College 

He served in numerous positions of leadership in 
Carthage First Baptist Church, including deacon, 
Sunday School director and teacher. He served in the association as moderator for 2 years 
and as treasurer for 7 years. He served eight years on the General Board of the State 
Baptist Convention and as a trustee of the Baptist Children's Homes. He served his com- 
munity as president of the Carthage Rotary Club and for fifteen years volunteered with 
AARP to assist ministers and older adults with their income tax returns.

Section 1. The Sandhills Baptist Association shall consist of messengers who are mem- 
bers of duly elected affiliated churches. 

Section 2. The objectives of this association shall be to promote fellowship, missions, 
associations, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, and the Southern Baptist 
Convention in all work of Southern Baptists. 

ARTICLE III - MEMBERSHIP AND AFFILIATIONS 

Section 1 . The Sandhills Baptist Association shall consist of messengers who are elect- 
ed members of affiliated churches. 

(1) Each church affiliated with this association having a membership up to one hun- 
dred members shall be entitled to four messengers and one additional messenger for every 
fifty members or major fraction thereof, thereafter. No church, however, shall be entitled 
to more than eight messengers. 

(2) Pastors of the affiliated churches and their missions and other full-time paid pro- 
fessional staff. 

(3) Duly elected officers of the association, department directors, chairpersons of all 
standing committees and the director of missions. 

Section 2. Affiliations: 

(1) The churches affiliated with this association shall be churches who use the New 
Testament as a statement of faith and church policy, and who teach that a person upon pro- 
fession of faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord will be immersed in water, unless prov- 
identially hindered, to qualify for church membership. In this and other doctrinal matters, 
the association subscribes to The Baptist Faith and Message adopted by the Southern 
Baptist Convention, May 9, 1963. 

(2) Churches shall be received into this fellowship only after having been under 
watchcare of the association for one full year. Application for membership shall be made 
through the Credentials Committee. The Association Board shall have the authority to 
receive any church under watchcare upon recommendation of the Credentials Committee. 

(3) Baptist churches affiliated with and in fellowship with other Baptist associations 
may become affiliated with the association without coming under the watchcare, upon the 
recommendation of the Credentials Committee and the approval of the Association Board 
or the association. 

(4) The Association shall only have the authority to advise the churches touching all 
things pertaining to their interest, but shall in no case presume to direct or control them in 
reference to their government or internal policy. The association recognizes the complete

the Credentials Committee to confer with the church. If satisfactory reason is not given 
and there is not effort to keep alive their association with the cooperating churches, the 
Credentials Committee shall bring its findings to the association. The association, by 
majority vote of its messengers casting ballots, may then withdraw its fellowship. The 
association recognizes that any affiliated church has the right to withdraw its fellowship

in writing to the association.

2. Clerk's Report (See Digest of Letters) 

The Association Board met three times at the Association Center during the past year: 
January 17, May 22, and September 18. The Board is composed of association officers, 
committee chairpersons, pastors/staff, and three laypersons from each church. Reports 
were given and association business was transacted. The 2000-2001 association calendar 
was approved and the proposed budget was presented for information at the May meeting. 
At the September meeting, the budget was approved for presentation to the annual meet- 
ing for adoption. Mrs. Chantel Stevenson was approved as BSU campus minister at the 
September meeting. Minutes were printed and distributed to the churches in early spring. 
The Digest of letters is printed on the last page of the book of reports. 

3. Director of Missions Report 

Primary reasons for the existence of the association are missions, evangelism, benevo- 
lence, fellowship, doctrine, and cooperation. More than ever, we are called upon to 
encourage and to support each other. In the midst of controversy and conflict within the 
convention, we need to trust each other more and hold each other up in esteem, to pray for 
each other. In the struggle against evil, we need the Christian armor to do battle against 
Satan and his forces. Thank God for the harmony and good will that exists among our 
churches in the association! Without it, we could not effectively do the work of our Lord. 
The apostle Paul has some appropriate, wise Counsel for us: "Fix your thoughts on what 
is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the 
fine, good things in others. Think about all you can praise God for and be glad about 
(Phil. 4:5b-8) 

We work together through providing resources and training conferences. This year 
most of our leaders conducted conferences or workshops and our committees functioned 
well. We continue with our mission projects, locally and world-wide. Several of our 
teams have been involved with disaster relief here and in the east and we have had to go 
to Honduras, Alaska, and to South Africa in the partnerships. These mission volunteers 
and the retired missionaries who live among us are great resources available to our church- 
es. 

This past year we have been working with some of our leaders and churches in an effort 
to begin new mission work with the Hispanics in Robbins and in the Vass area and to begin 
a mission in the Pinehurst- Whispering Pines area. Your prayers and support are encour- 
aged in these projects. We welcome Mrs. Chantel Stevenson to ministry as BSU Campus 
Minister; already she has laid a good foundation for future ministries with college age stu- 
dents. We hope that some of our churches will be able to use them in outreach ministry. 

This year I participated in director of missions conferences on the state level (Caraway) 
and the national level (Knoxville) in an effort to keep on the "cutting edge." Dr. Zeb Moss 
and I attended some convention strategy planning meetings known as "the Lab." 
Hopefully, the planning will help impact our area, the corridor from Raleigh down to the 
Sandhills, in a great way for Christ. Also, I have been doing more reading on ways to 
strengthen the local church and to encourage and to help our pastors and church leaders. 

Four churches have search committees seeking pastors: Beaver Creek, Cornerstone, 
Taylor Memorial, and Unity Grove. I am working with these churches to assist in any way 
possible. Church staff coming to our churches this year are: Rev. Tony Capehart, Lemon 
Springs; Luke McKay, pastor to West End First; Bruce Benton, minister of music and wor- 
ship to Cameron; Joyce Clevenger, minister of youth to Carthage First; Linda Barber, min- 

-47- 



ister of music and education (Part-time) to Ives Memorial; and Greg Pilson, minister of 
music to Robbins First. 

Thank you, fellow co-workers in ministry, for all your prayers and labor in ministry. 
May we accomplish even more in ministry through Christ our Lord as well as we minis- 
ter in the mission field at our doorstep.

J. Billy Graham, Director of Missions 

4. General Board Report 

The General Board of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina met in February, 
May, and September. The Executive Committee and the various sub-committees of the 
General Board met prior to the general sessions for planning, developing, and proposing 
ideas that were able to be brought to the General Board for action. 

The Lake Hickory Leadership Center was purchased. The vision for the center is to 
develop a first class leadership program for Baptist leaders. Action was taken by the 
General Board to allow Fruitland Bible School to begin construction on the proposed 
Randy Kilby Memorial Library. 

The Baptist State Convention continues to attract mission teams to support the State's 
partnership with eastern North Carolina, Alaska, and South Africa. A formal partnership 
agreement with Honduras will begin January 2001. Our informal mission support and 
cooperation since 1998 has resulted in 190 teams composed of more than 1,900 volun- 
teers. These teams have built more than 300 homes. The BSC continues to lead our 
churches to reach their mission goals effectively, thereby advancing the cause of Christ in 
our state and throughout the world.

VIII. Team Leaders' Reports 

1. Brotherhood Report 

Baptist Men have been active in several areas this past year, including the involvement 
of numerous groups in disaster relief projects, some still in progress in eastern North 
Carolina. Women and children also joined in some projects with the men, sharing the love 
of Jesus with needy people. Many needy families who were helped shared testimonies, 
affirming the help and blessing they received. 

Some men's groups have moved forward with individual disaster relief and handy man 
ministries, purchasing equipment trailers and necessary tools to use in giving assistance to 
people in need, particularly in disaster areas or hardship cases. Due to the big snowstorm 
this past winter, there were several emergencies for heating and other needs. God will not 
forget the labor of love provided for so many of our groups. By meeting a need, we often 
have opportunities to share the gospel, and help people find the love and forgiveness of 
the Savior. Churches are encouraged to find ways to reach out and help people in need. 

-48- 



Several Baptist men's groups volunteered to maintain the association grounds during 
the spring and summer months, mowing grass, trimming the hedges, and helping keep the 
property neat and attractive. Many thanks to the churches that helped! It gives a positive 
testimony of our faith in God to those who pass by and see the attractive grounds. 

Most of our churches observed Baptist Men's Day in January, providing opportunity 
for men and boys to fulfill most of the ministry and lead in worship on that day. Many 
RA's participated in the very successful annual RA car race on February 27 at Southern 
Pines. We thank those who participated and the host church for all their generous and 
good help. The annual Baptist Men and RA rally was held on August 7 at the association 
center. Many thanks to the outreach team of Lemon Springs church for cooking the deli- 
cious hot dog with trimmings meal and for ministering to us. Brother George Griffin, 
principal at Union Pines High School, shared his experience in construction and medicine 
in Honduras as part of a volunteer team from Southern Pines First church. He challenged 
the churches in the association to send construction teams to build block houses for the 
needy families who were devastated by hurricane Mitch. Masons, constructions workers 
and laborers can go to Honduras for about $800 and build one or two small block houses 
in one week. Make this mission need a matter of prayer. 

Please do not hesitate to call me if I can assist you or your church in any way. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lewis Blue, director 



2. Discipleship Training Report 

Discipleship training opportunities are numerous within the association, including 
everything from survival kit 1 (a must for building a foundation for new Christians) to sur- 
vival kit 2, prayer life, and the Mind of Christ. These are wonderful opportunities for 
Christians to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and 
also for churches to develop spiritually led leaders to help lead our churches effectively as 
we move through the year 2000 and beyond. As the discipleship training leader in the 
association, I would be willing to help interested persons set up classes and help train the 
facilitators. At Ashley Heights Baptist church, we have on-going Bible drill training for 
children and recently completed survival kit 1, and a marriage enrichment weekend, led 
by Rev. Tony and Kim Capehart who did a wonderful job for us. Rev. Capehart, pastor at 
Lemon Springs Baptist Church, has had extensive training in this area. Marriage enrich- 
ment is a must for churches. Leaders like Tony and Kim can assist with the weekend 
retreat. If you have any questions or if you would just like some information, please give 
me a call (944-1844), or at work (944-9345, ext. 222) 

Respectfully sumbitted, 
Dave Schuchard 



3. Evangelism Report 

I. In 1999 Baptists in North Carolina reported 28,319 baptisms. 

II. Our state convention staff has been reorganized. The Mission Growth Evangelism 
Group includes the following teams: Evangelism and Church Growth, Church Planting, 
Campus Ministry, and Baptist Men. 

III. Strategies to be emphasized this year: 

-49- 



1. Prayer Evangelism: Lighthouses of Prayer Strategy and Prayer Walking. This 
is taking prayer to the streets. Discuss Pray Care and Share Strategy of the national light- 
house of prayer movement and very specifics of an active prayer walking strategy for 
churches and individuals. 

2. Mapping Center for Evangelism: (a service through the Strategic Planning & 
Initiatives Group, BSCNC). The association will assist with this computer program. 
Learn ways to pray for and reach your neighborhood through the use of this tool. The 
Mapping Center allows you to print neighborhood maps and prayer lists that includes 
names, addresses and phone numbers. This tool is used in conjunction with the (New) 
Evangelism and Strategies (Overview). Introduction to Servanthood Evangelism, Family 
to Family Strategy, and One Verse Evangelism (A simple way to witness), as described 
below. 

1) Servanthood Evangelism: Sharing Jesus through Intentional Acts of 
Kindness. "What is reaching people?" Answer: Servanthood Evangelism is one of the 
most powerful ways to share Jesus effectively in our culture. It is a combination of sim- 
ple acts of kindness and intentional personal evangelism (may be linked to Lighthouses 
themes). 

2) Family to Family: Families Making a Difference (New!) . Family to Family 
is a new evangelism tool that combines discipleship, missions and relational evangelism 
training. This 6 week training helps families develop a family mission statement and pre- 
pare to be intentionally on mission for God in evangelizing their neighborhoods and com- 
munities. 

3) One Verse Evangelism: Sharing a Simple Witness. Use Romans 6:23, the 
bridge illustration and personal testimony to share the gospel with others. 

IV. Events and strategies to be carried out this year:

4. Library Media Report 

The association contains many helpful resources to aid teachers and other church lead- 
ers. If the resources needed are not at hand, they can be obtained from the Baptist State 
Convention media center or other sources. Church members are invited to make use of 
our resources and services. Whether your need is for reference, for spiritual growth as a 
person, or for help in dealing with any of life's situations, there is something for you. 

A successful workshop was held at the Associational Center in March, focusing on set- 
ting up and using a church library. Another library workshop is planned for March 17, 
2001. If your church is interested in starting a library media center, for library related 
questions please call Rev. Billy Graham (947-2238) or me (944-7570). 

Respectfully submitted, 
Betty Hardy, director 



5. Missions Report 

The missions committee has been busy in the past year working to develop new min- 
istries and new congregations in order to reach as many people for Christ as possible. The 
fields are white unto harvest and the need of workers is great. First Baptist Church, 
Southern Pines, and First Baptist Church, Aberdeen, are cooperating to help develop new 
work in the Whispering Pines-Pinehurst area. They are working with the association in 
forming a committee to carry out the plans. Other churches are encouraged and challenged 
to assist in this work. Bethlehem church has already budgeted $1000 per year for 3 years 
when the work begins. We are embarking on another new Hispanic work in the Robbins 
area; Robbins FBC has offered their help. New Home church also has indicated help with 
the use of their old sanctuary in a new Hispanic ministry in the Vass area. The Baptist State 
Convention consultant with Hispanic ministries is helping in coordinating help with other 
Hispanic pastors and laymen in the region and has located a possible Hispanic pastor to 
lead the work in our association. In your area of influence what is God leading your church 
to participate in to help establish new work and to be involved in missions? 

Respectfully submitted, 
Ed Johnson, director

6. Music Report 

As you know, each year begins with training and preparation. In August we met at Key 
Leadership training to share needs and ideas and to plan the upcoming year. 

In October, music was provided for the annual meeting. In November and December 
we worked in our own churches preparing holiday music. In January we held our fifth 
"soup and sandwich swap shop" at the rescue center. Several of our directors enjoyed a 
meal together, provided by Linda Barber, while sharing ideas, joys and challenges within 
the music ministries of our own churches and the association. 

In April over fifty directors and choir members enjoyed a choral clinic led by Pepper 
Choplin, composer and minister of music from Raleigh. We worked on four of Pepper's 
songs, which we were then able to "take home" and use with our own choirs. 

Our seventh choirsing was held on August 27 at Robbins FBC. Six church choirs pro- 
vided music for this year's festival. We have really enjoyed this tradition. 

As we look to the new church year of 2000-2001, several things are planned: an appre- 
ciation banquet for music leaders in November, the swap shop in January, a clinic in April, 
and another choirsing in August. I trust you will continue the good music tradition we 
have together built in the Sandhills Association. 

It has been a pleasure and a rewarding experience to work with our churches these eight 
years. Keep up the good work of growing in the grace and knowledge of Christ and serv- 
ing Him with your song. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Sandi Brady Ward, director 



7. Pastoral Ministries Report 

This year pastoral ministries sponsored a deacon/spouse training conference led by 
Rev. Don Bouldin of the Baptist State Convention at the association center on Monday, 
December 29. In partnership with minister support, BSC, Dr. Fred McGehee, director, we 
hosted two regional pastoral seminars for our ministers and ministers in our region. Dr. 
Wayne Stacey, Dean, Gardner-Webb Divinity School, led the March 8 seminar on 
"Preaching and Teaching to a Diverse Congregation," and Dr. Tom Meigs of Dallas, pas- 
toral counselor of Dallas, Texas, led the seminar on September 20 on "Humor in 
Ministry." On request of those in attendance last fall, Rev. Bouldin is invited to come back 
and lead our deacon's training conference this year, November 27, at the association cen- 
ter. These conferences have been well attended. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Jesse Mansfield, director 



8. Senior Adult Report 

This year our senior adult banquet was a huge success. Over 250 people were served. 
We were the guests of Robbins FBC who treated us to a wonderful meal. Rev. Ernest 
Ferrell and the kind people of Robbins have offered to be our host for next year as well. 

The entertainment kept our feet tapping to the arrangements of the old hymns that have 
spoken to our hearts through the years. We were blessed by those who gave of their time 
and talent to be used by God that evening. 

-52- 



We look forward to more being present next year for another celebration. The date is 
set for Monday, May 1, 2001. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Archie Stevens, director 



9. Stewardship Report 

In May of this year, the association sponsored our annual stewardship conference. It 
was held at Russell's Seafood House, where we enjoyed a great seafood family style meal. 
We had a great turn out for the meeting and would like to thank everyone who came and 
participated. 

Next May 24, 2001, we will again have the stewardship conference with Dan Euliss 
from the Baptist State Convention leading the conference. Make plans now to go and be 
a part of this great conference. We encourage each church to send their pastor and two 
church leaders. I am sure it will be beneficial to them and your church. Remember, God 
loves a cheerful giver! 

Respectfully submitted, 
Gregg Newton, director 



10. Sunday School Report 

This year Rev. Phil Stone of the Baptist State Convention, did a great job in leading our 
Sunday School conference on March 20; Dr. Greg Poplin, his family and some friends at 
Cameron church, prepared and served a delicious meal. Mrs. Judy Strother and the VBS 
team prepared and led a very good VBS clinic at Bethlehem on the theme: "The Fantastic 
Good News, Diving into the Depths of God's Faithfulness." We are grateful for all the 
generous help that our host churches, Cameron and Bethlehem, and our association lead- 
ers, gave for these conferences. We will be planning a Sunday School conference for 
February 19, 2001, and a VBS clinic for April 23. Lifeway made some changes in Sunday 
School curriculum this past year. The association media library has some video tapes that 
explain the changes and also training tapes for Sunday School leaders. Our association 
team will seek to assist you in your Sunday School needs. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Joe Howell, director 



11. Woman's Missionary Union Report 

Under the theme "Transformed — Take the Stand," your associational WMU leadership 
team began the 1999-2000 year with our training rally for local church age level leader- 
ship at the resource center September 11, 1999. The team members put a lot of effort into 
preparation for this event for all local church WMU directors at the resource center. 

In an effort to show appreciation and affirmation, on October 31 the leadership team 
provided an appreciation event for all local church WMU directors at the resource center. 

Churches were encouraged to participate in the Baptist Women's Day of Prayer, this 

-53- 



past November 1, 1999. Not only prayer, but also learning about the needs of women 
around the world, especially third world countries, is included. Offerings were sent to 
help with needs. We also encouraged participation in the Week of Prayer emphases for 
International Missions and the ingathering of the Lottie Moon offering, November 28 - 
December 4. We urged participation in NC State Missions prayer emphases and receiv- 
ing an offering for state missions. 

On February 26, 2000 our annual prayer retreat was well attended with over 75 persons 
present at Fairview Baptist Church. Fairview was such a wonderful host, providing gen- 
erous delicious food, beautiful decorations and comfortable facilities. People still talk 
about the inspiration and Bible study we received under the leadership of Evelyn Moss, 
prayer retreat leader. We are grateful for the hospitality of Fairview church, Edith Martin 
and their ladies, and Evelyn Moss, our leader. 

"Associational Day 2000," led by GA consultants Hope Miller and Anne Mills, was 
held March 1 1 at Aberdeen FBC. It was a wonderful time of fellowship mission pro- 
grams, music and crafts, and good food. 

Our annual celebration, another unforgettable event, was held at Ashley Heights church 
on March 23. NAMB missionary Dottie Williamson, inspired, informed, challenged, and 
blessed us with her humor, bringing us to tears and laughter as she told us about her call 
of God and mission work. Edna Walters, state WMU director of development, shared with 
us concerning the NC campaign project, (Mundo Vista and its needs, in particular). In a 
step of faith it was voted by unanimous agreement to participate in the project as recom- 
mended by our WMU team leaders. Grady and Lois Culler are our special consultants for 
the project. Judy Strother blessed us with a beautiful solo, Anne Graham led us in an 
inspiring devotion, Frances Pickler conducted a beautiful installation service, and Elaine 
Crissman and Ashley Heights ladies did a wonderful job in decorating the fellowship hall 
and in providing an abundance of delicious food. Thanks to all for making this a true cel- 
ebration. 

Seven members of your leadership team received training at Ridgecrest, May 5-7. Your 
director went back on May 8 to attend the state key leader conference. Ten team mem- 
bers received the training at Caraway on July 15. 

Joann Lowery led in the activities on Missions Friends Day at Fairview church, August 
12. We appreciate Joann and all the ladies at Fairview for all their help and support. 

On August 18 the leadership team hosted an annual appreciation dinner at the resource 
center for all our ministers and their spouses and our missionaries. A special thanks to 
Rev. Eugene Ussery of Emmanuel Church and Mr. Greg Pilson of Robbins FBC for their 
wonderful music. In my absence due to illness, I am deeply indebted to our leadership 
team for their leadership of this special event. 

Many thanks to Patricia Gregory and other WMU ladies for leading the WMU key 
leader conference at Carthage on August 27. Patricia Gregory and the Nursing Fellowship 
met several times during the year at the Association Center. 

Association- wide missions involvement included the following projects: shirts, coats, 
and birthday cakes for Cameron Boys Home; food and other items for flood victims in 
Eastern North Carolina; kits for the medical dental van project at Southern Pines; gifts at 
Christmas for women in state correction center; school items for children in need of sup- 
plies; socks for residents of long term facilities; and the Samaritan Purse project of 
Christmas gift shoe boxes for needy overseas children. Some church women groups also 
had other projects. 

I want to thank everyone on the leadership team for giving many hours in planning and 
leading events, the nominating committee for their diligent work, and all ladies who 

-54- 



helped with phone calls. A special thanks to Dr. Graham for his encouragement and sup- 
port seeing that the center was always available for us to use. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Viola Bowlin, director 



12. Youth Report 

We want to thank Rev. Robbie Gibson for serving faithfully as association youth direc- 
tor the last three years. During this past year, several youth leaders from the churches met 
two times, January 1 1 and April 25, at the association center to share a covered dish meal 
and to discuss youth ministry ideas and principles and to plan youth ministries. The asso- 
ciation youth night was held at Vass First on March 10. 

13. Campus Ministry Report (BSU) 

On July 28, 2000, the Lord brought into fruition seeds that had been planted by Dr. 
Billy Graham and Mr. Joeseph Clontz of the NC Baptist State Convention: the Sandhills 
Baptist Association Baptist Student Union (BSU) conducted its first meeting. Kindling 
this event was the groundwork that began with my employment on July 14, 2000. 
Following my retention, Dr. Graham and Mr. Clontz directed me to take several steps in 
establishing the BSU. First with the help of the core group, we called the pastors of the 
churches of the association to obtain names and telephone numbers of college age stu- 
dents. Second, we contacted each student by phone and invited him or her to an ice cream 
fellowship on August 25. Then we agreed to meet weekly on Thursday nights at 7 pm at 
the Association Center. So far, we have had weekly Bible studies on August 31; 
September 7, 14, 21, 28; and October 5. In September, we participated in the NC Baptist 
Student Convention at Ridgecrest. At present, we have six members attending the week- 
ly meetings. For the future we hope to increase participation, establish a constitution, 
become a sanctioned group within the Sandhills Community College, continue in-depth 
Bible studies and opportunities for spiritual growth, and for the spring of 2001, establish 
an outreach team available to churches within the association for weekend retreats. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Chantel Stevenson, BSU Campus Minister

6. Property and Grounds Report 

The Property and Grounds Committee is responsible for maintaining the association 
property and keeping the grounds in good condition and attractive appearance. We want 
to extend our deepest gratitude to our Baptist Men and to our pastors for their support in 
making the association property attractive by trimming the shrubs and maintaining the 
grounds. The following churches volunteered to maintain the grounds: Pleasant Hill in 
May, Robbins First in June, Red Branch in July and September, and Emmanuel in August. 
Again, thank you! Pleasant Hill has already volunteered for April and May, 2001. We 
have a goal of $50,000 for our endowment fund of which the interest will be used for 
maintenance and utilities. Presently, we have $17,417.00 in the fund. We need the sup- 
port of individuals and churches in this project.

7. Seminary Extension Report 

Seminary Extension continues to be a means by which one can study the Bible and the- 
ology from where you are living right now. You can earn both college and seminary cred- 
it from some of the courses. Maybe you just want to take a Bible survey course or a par- 
ticular book of the Bible, or even study about a particular subject, you can do it through 
seminary extension. If you are one of those busy folk who find it hard to take time away 
from home or work to further your Christian education, then seminary extension is for 
you. Anyone desiring to have more information should contact the association center.

Michael Branscome, director

XL Historical Events in the Churches 

ABERDEEN: In October 1999, our church voted to lease the parsonage to Sandhills 
Interfaith Hospitality Network for $ 1 per year to be used as a Day Center for home- 
less mothers and their children. The church was involved in helping two families in 
Eastern, NC to rebuild their homes following destruction by Hurricane Floyd. The 
youth joined with others in the "2000 World Changers" mission program and par- 
ticipated in a mission trip to Meridian, Mississippi. The youth as well as a large 
number of adults were involved in several local ministries to church members, 
working on homes, mowing lawns and cleaning yards. Donna Lowe, Minister of 
Youth and Children, resigned her position, due to her husband, Todd, accepting a 
position with First Baptist Church, Clemson, SC. In July, the church endorsed 
Reese Blanchett to attend seminary. Reese joined our church in March by transfer 
of church letter from Cornerstone Baptist Church, Wake Forest, NC. Pastor Mike 
Branscome started the Barnabas Ministry. This ministry will be for new members 
to help them get acquainted with the church programs and encourage them to par- 
ticipate and take an active part in the life of the church. (Rita Cameron, Clerk) 

ASHLEY HEIGHTS: The congregation has grown by over forty members this past year. 
Rev. and Mrs. Tony Capehart led a marriage enrichment retreat in August. 

BEAVER CREEK: We are making a church cookbook as part of a building fundraiser. 
We are proud that Donna Brown and Lewis Hardy are able to offer signing for the 
hearing impaired during our worship services. This year we are planning to reor- 
ganize our Baptist Men's group. Our church continues to go forward and with 
God's help, we will be successful. (Barbara Marks, Clerk) 

BETHLEHEM: The Rev. Tony Herndon, a former pastor of the church, delivered the 
homecoming message in October. The Rev. John Brown, pastor of Courtney Baptist 
Church in Yadkinville, conducted the revival in October. Several members attend- 
ed Equipping the Church at Caswell in October. Our church participated in the joint 
Thanksgiving service. A Christmas play was presented. The Women on Missions 
collected and recycled cans to raise funds for projects, provided gifts for the 
Cameron Boys Home, sent gifts to a home missionary family in Maine, and other 
projects. Christmas in August was a project of Missions Friends and GA's. A 
retired missionary, Mrs. Jean Byrd, spoke during the morning service on Sept. 24. 
The men prepared and served breakfast following the Easter Sunrise service. Two 
classes in Experiencing God were taught during winter and spring. The church 
hosted VBS clinic in April. VBS was held the first week of June. The church host- 
ed a 40th wedding anniversary luncheon for Pastor and Mrs. Johnson in July. The 
Christian Cheer group ministers to homebound, care center residents, provides 
small gifts, sends cards. The Cheer group headed a church wide project to collect 
funds to purchase appliances for homes for victims of Hurricane Floyd in Duplin 

-64- 



County. The Senior Adult Ministry provides lunch on the 2nd Wednesday in each 
month. A group attended Equipping the Church conference at Ridgecrest on Sept. 
8-9. The Church Council is working to make our programs and activities more 
effective. A Family Focus/Missions Night is scheduled for the third Wednesday in 
each month with supper provided. Mission Friends, GA's, RA's, and Acteens meet, 
and also a class for adults. Pastor Johnson completed ten years of ministry at our 
church on September 17. We praise God for his ministry, the blessings we've 
received, and the progress which has occurred during this time. (Shirley Hooker, 
historian) 

BEULAH HILL: A team from the church went on another mission trip to Rock Cave, 
West Virginia. A new van was purchased for church use. 

CALVARY: Our church installed new stain glass windows in the sanctuary, and a new 
ice maker in the fellowship hall. Landscaping was done on the church grounds. The 
church continues to be in support of missions. (Janet Brewer, Clerk) 

CAMERON: Rev. Joe Babb preached the homecoming message in October. Rev. C. Paul 
Jones was the evangelist for the fall revival. Rev. Mike Branscome was the preach- 
er for the spring revival. Steve Gilmore was recognized for his willingness and 
faithfulness to serve when the church needed a volunteer choir director. In 
November on "Florence Hardy Day" the library was named after her and a placque 
was given in her honor and in appreciation for her building the library in many years 
as church librarian. On Father's day the church held our first pastor appreciation 
day, honoring our pastor, Dr. Greg Poplin on his 10th anniversary at the church, and 
giving him and his family an expense paid week to Maine. For each of these cele- 
brations, we had lunch in the fellowship hall after the service and recognition. This 
year was filled with various local mission projects, both planned and spontaneous. 
Many men and women went to Sharpsburg for a few weekends to clean up a church 
and help rebuild a home, both of which were severely damaged by hurricane Floyd. 
Our men's group, Legacy Builders, cooked a Christmas meal on Christmas Eve and 
carried it to the shut-ins in the community. They also built ramps, and delivered 
wood to a sick person, and helped build a garage. During the big snow storm in 
January, several men carried gas stoves and food to elderly shut-ins. Pastor Poplin 
brought out his generator to help people keep their food from spoiling. In the 
Spring, many church members went to Camp Mundo Vista to help clean it up free 
of charges so that it could be used. The WMU raised over $1000 to send to the 
Emmits in Sri Lanka, and former member, Michelle Kelly in Romania. This May, 
during Cameron's annual antique and collectible street fair, our church provided 
meals, drinks and parking, free of charge, and handed out fliers about the free gift 
of salvation. People were so struck by these free services that over $1000 was 
donated and distributed among missionaries we support. And lastly, in September 
several church members helped Habitat for Humanity in their "Building on Faith 
Blitz." This May, after being called in September, Rev. Bruce Benton began serv- 
ing as our new minister of worship and music. He leads all music and sometimes 
preaches, if needed. His wife, Lynda, is the music administrative assistant. We had 
many gospel groups come and sing at the church, including the Harvesters, Mark 
Templeton and New Vision. And as usual, our sanctuary choir participated in the 
annual associational choir festival. The holidays were celebrated in special ways 
this year: a harvest festival in October, a community Thanksgiving service in 
November, caroling before Christmas and a Christmas cantata in December, fol- 
lowed by a "Millennium Moment" in celebration of the year 2000, a service of 
prayer and appreciation for community officials in February, and a community sun- 

-65- 



rise service at Easter. The children and youth were active this year. This year we 
started a children's church ministry. The youth went to Metamorphosis, held in 
Apex in the spring. Several GA's went to camp this summer. Two parent-child ser- 
vices were held. We hosted a community- wide VBS, involving all three churches 
in Cameron, under the leadership of David Norton and Tricia Loving. The adults 
traveled to retreats and took other trips. Thirty persons attended the second annual 
marriage enrichment retreat at Ft. Caswell. The senior adults went to Greensboro 
for the second senior adult festival and to Ft. Caswell. The church installed a new 
ice machine, a new stove, and a new carpet in the fellowship hall. Many new books 
were given to the library as special gifts or in memory of loved ones, in an effort to 
expand our library through new purchases. Overall, this has been a year of growth, 
both in new families and new ministries. (Alma Kelly and Lois Moses, historians). 

CARTHAGE: Rev. Thomas Herndon began his ministry as pastor, October 1, 1999. 
Mrs. Joyce Clevenger served as summer youth worker for two summers and was 
called to be full-time youth minister, effective October 1, 2000. The vestibule was 
renovated this year. Kelli Herndon served with a BSU team from Mars Hill College 
for five weeks in South Africa as part of the North Carolina/South Africa partner- 
ship. (Susan Lawhon, Clerk). 

CORNERSTONE: Rev. James Cagle resigned after five years faithful service. Rev. 
Charles Hinson, retired pastor of Aberdeen First, was called as interim pastor. 

EAGLE SPRINGS: After serving as interim pastor, Dr. Zeb Moss was called as pastor, 
effective January 1, 2000. October 18th, we hosted the 50th Anniversary Annual 
Meeting for the association, with fellowship, refreshments, and a 50th anniversary 
cake after the service. Participated in the community Thanksgiving service with 
Zeb Moss presenting the message. The WMU placed emphasis on the following 
offerings: Baptist Children's Homes, State Missions, Lottie Moon, and Annie 
Armstrong. Zeb Moss taught a foreign mission study. WMU presented a love offer- 
ing to Gaberial Gakuna, missionary from Kenya. Other special speakers for mis- 
sions in observance of WMU Sunday were: Dottie Williamson, NAMB missionary; 
Cladie Heisel, Home missions volunteer; Rebecca Watson, Meredith College stu- 
dent who visited India; and Cara Lynn Croom from Cary WMU office.

memory of loved ones. Special packages were prepared for patients of the 
Medical/Dental Van. Youth sponsored a live nativity with church family participat- 
ing including live animals. Christmas program presented in sanctuary with all age

EMMANUEL: God has richly blessed us this year! Our brothers and sisters are grow- 
ing in Christ and more concerned with sharing their love with the less fortunate. 
Our men made several trips to help flood victims of the flood in the east. We pur- 
chased a 7x12 disaster relief trailer for use in transporting tools to needy sites. The 
name for the group, "Carpenters 4 Christ," seek to help a church member or a needy 
person in the community. The ladies set up a food pantry and a library for the 
church; people are donating tapes, videos, and books that can be checked out. God 
has blessed us with a beautiful, new 7500 square foot, 300 seat sanctuary that will 
be dedicated to the glory of God in October, 2000. We are in the process of reno- 
vating the old sanctuary for use as a fellowship hall and kitchen. The parking lot 
has just been paved. A new piano, drums, and a new sound system have been pur- 
chased for use in the sanctuary. Some of our members recently were involved in the 
"relay for life" cancer drive, raising over $1,500 for the American Cancer Society. 
We are thankful to God for allowing us to have our pastor Rev. Eugene Ussery, go 
full-time in ministry. Christmas, 1999 we collected 30 shoe boxes of supplies for 
sending to needy children overseas through the Samaritan Purse; and we participat- 
ed in a one to one project in cooperation with a Romanian pastor, collecting over 30 
boxes of gifts and sending them to children in one of the poorest areas in Slobozia, 
Romania. The junior youth group of the church have been busy little beavers this 
year: they had an ice cream social, a pizza party, a trip to Emerald Point, involved 
in several outreach projects, helped with the Christmas project for the Romanian 
orphanage, prepared a Thanksgiving dinner for an elderly lady and young boy who 
was given a name by the department of aging, sent a fruit basket to a sick couple of 
the church, raised $40 in coins which were matched by CP&L (making $80) to help 
flood victims, purchased two choir chairs at $50 each for the choir, and gave a fruit 
basket to a family in bereavement. The men of the church went on two fishing trips. 
We are looking forward to the dedication of our new building and the fellowship 
dinner for that occasion. (Boyd Marsh, historian). 

EPHESUS: This year has been full of activity at Ephesus beginning in October with an 
observance of World Hunger Day. A special offering was made for the relief of the 
flood victims in the eastern part of the state, and youth and adults traveled in the van 
with supplies. One in the eastern part of the state, and youth and adults traveled in 
the van with supplies. One Sunday School class delivered school supplies to the 
Children's Home in Kinston. Don and Jan Pittman, former missionaries came to 
speak at a morning service of the needs of world missions. The WMU led the annu- 
al collection for flannel shirts of the Cameron Boy's Home. Annual Thanksgiving 
collection for Baptist Children's Homes was led by the WMU and Men of the 
church. WMU led the International Missions Week of Prayer and the monetary goal 
was exceeded. The Chancel Choir presented a Christmas cantata; the youth min- 
istry, a drama; and the Believers Choir had a program. Hand chimes were donated 
by the William Collins family and a choir under the direction of Janis Layne and 
Lisa White, is now performing regularly. A new Senior adult committee has led in 
several events during the year. The youth enjoyed a ski trip. Baptist Men's Day was 
observed in January and the WMU led in a prayer retreat open to the church. Four 
baby showers were given for the new members to the nursery. Baptist Womens' Day 

-67- 



was observed in February. One member honored his wife on their 25th anniversary 
with a church wide reception following the worship hour. In March, the Week of 
Prayer for American Missions was observed with church wide study of the current 
needs; we exceeded our goal. We had a surprise reception for the pastor and his wife 
on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary after worship one Sunday. Easter 
sunrise service was held in cooperation with other community churches. A cantata 
was presented by the Chancel Choir and a children's choir program was held. Youth 
also attended Super Summer at Carowinds in July. As we begin a new year, we have 
reorganized Sunday School classes and are planning for the bi-annual homecoming. 
We have exceeded our offering goals and budget. We have tried to reach spiritual 
goals. We have been blessed. (Bernice M. Briggs, Historian) 

FAIRVIEW: Several missionary Rev. Peter Lord from Florida conducted revival/evan- 
gelism and prayer services, October 24-26, 1999. We hosted the association WMU 
retreat and the Missions Friends event. 

IVES MEMORIAL: Rev. David Boroughs had our Spiritual Refreshment week-end on 
October 6-8, 1999. This event consisted of four services for the purpose of spiritu- 
al renewal of our church. We sponsored state, home, and foreign mission studies 
and offerings, conducted a VBS with record attendance, participated in joint com- 
munity Thanksgiving services, and held a candlelight service on New Year's Eve. 
We enjoyed a sweetheart banquet in February, held our Homecoming in May with 
Rev. James Daves, former pastor, as our speaker. The youth participated in Youth 
Sunday, Super Sunday at Carowinds, and Caswell. The children's choir performed 
several times during the year. Ives Memorial was 100 years old on March 4, 2000. 
We had a large centennial celebration on March 5th. We invited all our former liv- 
ing pastors to attend. Four of six were able to attend and each was given a few min- 
utes to talk of their ministry here. (John Carpenter, Historian) 

LEMON SPRINGS: Rev. Tony Capehart accepted the call to become pastor. The 
Capeharts purchased a house in Sanford. Plans are being made to pave the parking 
lot. Tony and Kim Capehart are available to conduct marriage enrichment retreats. 

MIDDLE CROSS: Twenty years ago on September 28, our church was started, and God 
has been good to us, allowing us to accomplish many things. We had a good 
Christmas play and were asked to repeat the performance at Victory Baptist on New 
Year's Eve to celebrate the new Millennium. Our Easter play called the Messiah, 
was a grand production with all the church participating in some way with lighting, 
scenery, props, etc. One lady made all the robes. It was great to see everyone work- 
ing together. It was so well received that two church groups asked us to present it 
again on May 7th for the unsaved and those who could not attend Easter. God 
deserves all the Praise. VBS theme was "Fruits of the Spirit", and was the best we 
ever had. On September 24th, we celebrated Homecoming. The day began with 
worship in song by the group from Burlington called the Visionaries who were a real 
blessing. The speaker was Rev. Roy Little, and a fellowship dinner followed the ser- 
vice. Let us give greater service. (Leora Thomas, Historian) 

NEW FREEDOM: Founding pastor, Rev. Gary Greene moved to New Orleans Baptist 
Seminary. Under the leadership of Pastor Steven Burrow, the congregation meets at 
EduCare, Pinehurst and has a program of ministry, discipleship, and outreach. For 
several years, the mission was sponsored by Ives Memorial Baptist Church. 

NEW HOME: We have much to praise God for at New Home! We have been blessed 
with four revivals, a live play, several fellowship dinners, a very successful VBS, the 
call of a new youth minister, and most of all the sparing of our dear Pastor Jimmy 
Phillip's life. Pastor Phillips has undergone three surgeries this year and still is 

-68- 



praising the Lord for being so good to him! What an inspiration he is to all of us. 
Thanks to all the churches and community for all the prayers, financial support, and 
every act of kindness shown to him and our church. May we all continue to praise 
God for His many blessings. (Clerk, Vickie Hicks). 

PINEYWOOD: Praise the Lord for another wonderful year at our church. We adopted 
one child for the year at the Baptist Children's Home in Thomasville, NC, which 
pays for the child's clothes and school supplies. We installed new vinyl tinted win- 
dows in the church and resurfaced our driveway. Also, in the parsonage, new car- 
pet and vinyl flooring was installed, gas logs, and a new washing machine. The 
George Lane family had a new PA system installed in the church. New song books 
were purchased for the church choir. We had a revival love offering for Rev. Jimmy 
Phillips in the amount of $2,000.00 to help with medical bills. We love our pastor 
and family very much. (Shirley Lassiter, Clerk) 

PINE GROVE: This year we erected a flag pole in front of the church in memory of Sam 
Deaton, and installed carpet, lights and a sound system in the sanctuary. We voted 
to brick around the fellowship hall. The WMU has a project to put up new doors 
and make a memory quilt. The women of the church organized a softball team. 
(Clerk, Mary Ann Myrick). 

PLEASANT HILL: Continued in membership and outreach. All mission offering goals 
exceeded. Homecoming, at which several charter members of the church were pre- 
sent, was held in May with lunch in the fellowship hall after worship service. 
Revival services with guest speaker, Rev. Steve Freeman. Pastor Appreciation Day

and conducted a training session. A new carport for the van, parking spaces and 
landscaping completed by the Brotherhood. Nursery remodeling and redecoration 
project undertaken. A year full of opportunities to serve Christ. (Kay Neff, 
Historian) 

RED BRANCH: In September, the youth adults entertained seniors with a wonderful 
supper and "Hee Haw" show. October, church participated in Crop Walk. 
November 21st, the family of Lura Morton presented church with 95 pew Bibles in 
honor of their mother, Mrs. Lura Morton. Also, on this day we enjoyed a church 
wide "Love Feast" for Thanksgiving enjoyed by all. Our choir and mission groups 
regularly visit and sing for the patients at Pine Lake Nursing Home; our pastor 
delivers a sermon each time. In January, there was a disciples' training class taught 
by Percy Flowers, and new Christmas were really blessed. February 20th was a spe- 
cial Sunday night Service with the theme "99 Reasons to Praise God". March 12th, 
we celebrated Youth Day with guest speaker Dr. Andy Kiser, who grew up in our 
church. On April 23rd, we had our annual "Sonrise" Service followed by breakfast. 
Choir presented a cantata entitled "The Night Before Easter". In April, our church 
helped David Taylor on his mission trip to Alaska with a love offering. April 9th, 
we had Vince Tharpe present "Its Arts Alive". He did a beautiful painting in chalk 
of the "Resurrection" as we watched. In May, we participated in "operation shoe 
box" to provide a shoe box with educational and hygiene items along with a per- 
sonal toy for each child. Rev. Jim Hales invited us to help in this project for the chil- 
dren of Kosovo and Kitty Flowers was in charge of it. On May 28th, we celebrat- 
ed the 78th Homecoming of our church. Rev. Bennie Maness was guest speaker 
with dinner on the grounds afterward. We had a successful VBS in June with direc- 
tors Kimberly and Phillip Smith. On July 2nd, we celebrated "Independence Day" 

-69- 



in our morning service praising God for our country and freedom; veterans were 
also recognized. On July 30, we had a church-wide cookout. August 26th, we had 
a free yard sale and breakfast. Also this month, a church-wide mission project for 
an orphanage in Russia. An offering was given in August to help build "Fruitland 
Library". (Edith Marsh, Historian) 
ROBBINS: In our last historical report from our church, we were in the finishing process 
of our new Worship & Fellowship Facility. It was ready for our 1999 Homecoming 
Service and a large attendance filled the building. The first Wednesday of every 
month our Pastor, Ernest Ferrell cooks with the help of his dear wife, Ann. This is 
called our Family Night Fellowship followed by Bible Study and Prayer. Our Fall 
Revival was October 3-6, 1999 with Rev. David Smith from West Virginia preach- 
ing. We were blessed with evening meals prepared by the Women on Missions' 
Groups before each service and special music each night. Our Joint Community 
Thanksgiving Service was at our church this year on November 21, 1999 in our new 
Worship & Fellowship Center. Moving the tables and placing chairs gave us room 
for all the people coming from other churches. Pastors of all the churches partic- 
ipated in the service. The offering received during this service is used by the 
Robbins Area Christian Ministries to help people with needs in our community. The 
Mission Groups and children participated in "Operation Christmas Child." Each 
November a load of shoe boxes wrapped in Christmas design paper is carried to 
Charlotte to the Samaritan Purse Center. On November 28, 1999 we had a 
"Hanging of the Greens" Service where all the Sunday School classes participated 
in decorating the Sanctuary for Christmas. On December 5, 1999 we had our 
Worship & Fellowship Building Dedication Service with guest speakers: U.S. 
Senator John Edwards, a former member and Astronaut, Dr. Charles Brady from 
Robbins. Dr. Allan Moseley, Dean of Students at Southeastern Baptist Theological 
Seminary, brought an encouraging message to the morning's celebration. In 
January 2000, Baptist Men's Day had to be postponed because of the weather and 
the Blizzard that blew through preventing several services at church. So it was 
February when they had their day. The Women on Mission had their Focus Day the 
last of February 2000. Our Spring Revival, with an emphasis on evangelism, was 
March 26-29, 2000 with Dr. Wade Armstrong preaching. For Easter, members of 
the choir, and many of our children dressed in costumes, presenting a drama with 
music and acting. In June, our Vacation Bible School was held a week after school 
was out. The theme was "Road Rally 2000: In the Race with Jesus." The youth 
from our church went to Camp Caswell in July and three of our men went on a mis- 
sion trip to Brazil. In August, we had a Note-Burning Service, celebrating getting 
our Church Bus paid off. Haywood Lane, President of The Fidelity Bank was there 
to speak and instigated the note-burning. The men and women of our church work 
in the Robbins Area Ministry Store in March and September. This ministry helps a 
lot of people who need coats, shoes or other necessary items as well as food. We 
also have an Easter Joint Service with other churches in the community. This offer- 
ing also goes to the Robbins Area Ministries to help those in need. Kenneth takes 
photos of all the events and celebrations. Please let me know if you would like some 
of these. We are now 70 and started to this church when we were small children and 
could really tell you some history from way back. We have seen the church orga- 
nized and its growth - And to God be the Glory! (Kenneth and Opal Kennedy, 
Historians)

our youth went to Dallas on a World Changers Mission Trip. We hosted seven 
Belarussian children and their interpreter for six weeks and supplied dental and eye 
care as well as recreation advantages. We inaugurated a love feast in our Christmas

Lenton devotionals written by church members. A big event of our year was to host 
singer and songwriter Kyle Matthews, and Beth Nimmo, mother of Rachel Scott
